ment team appeared before the Township of Wyckoff Planning Board to present further testimony on the pro- posed ShopRite at Wyckoff and Greenwood avenues. The 62,042 s/f structure would replace a distressed former supermarket in the heart of Wyckoff ’s central business district. Jay Troutman, Jr., PA, a principal withMcDonough & ReaAssociates, Inc., of West- field, NJ, has analyzed the circulation of cars and trucks to and from the proposed site and has addressed traffic concerns throughout the ap- plication. He restated that Wyckoff Avenue, a county road, is still considered a “candidate for signalization,” but county officials have yet to issue a final decision. “Inserra will comply with whatever recommendations the county makes on traffic signals or restrictions,” said James Jaworski, Esq., who is representing Inserra in this application. “The develop- ment team is also working closely with local officials to ensure the safest layout of this site.” Inserra has already ad- dressed recommendations from township officials, en- gineers and the Shade Tree Commission. They recently introduced minor revisions to the site layout plan that CONSHOHOCKEN, PA — Metro Commercial an- nounced that it has brokered five leases in grocery/pow- er anchored centers, for Th e S o l i d Wood Cabi- net Compa- ny totaling over 14,000 s/f, in South- eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Brian Goodwin of Metro Commercial, who exclusively represents The Solid Wood Cabinet Company, inked a 2,000 s/f lease transaction for Norriton Square, Norristown, PA.

Changes to the species and arrangement of the plants and trees were also added at the sugges- tion of the Township’s Shade Tree Commission. Improved visual interest in the site will be achieved by stagger- ing the trees, spacing them closer together, and replac- ing deciduous species with evergreens. Additionally, Troutman tes- tified that neither the park- ing lot reconfiguration nor the landscape enhancements will negatively impact sight lines or traffic circulation on the site. The project’s archi- tect, ThomasAshbahian, also confirmed that the architec- tural plan was unaffected by the revisions. ■

remedied minor parking, landscaping and drainage concerns and eliminated the need for several variances. In the revised plan, park- ing lot islands and light posts were relocated to address concerns raised by the Shade Tree Commission. “The lot’s reconfiguration not only en- hances the symmetry and aesthetics of the site, but also allows for an increased number of parking spots,” said Andrew Missey, a li- censed professional engineer at Paramus-based Lapatka Associates. The plan now calls for 386 spots, exceeding the code requirement of 380 and eliminating any discus- sion of the need for a park- ing variance. In addition, a proposed variance for the size of a loading space was also eliminated. Revisions to the landscap-
